S8 Note - This prescription item is Schedule 8 and can only be supplied on a script from a registered doctor in Queensland. Any prescriptions from any other state cannot be filled and will be returned in the mail

This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

General Information



What is in this leaflet
This leaflet answers some common questions about Paradex.

It does not contain all the available information.

It does not take the place of talking to your doctor or pharmacist.

All medicines have risks and benefits. Your doctor has weighed the risks of you taking Paradex against the benefits they expect it will have for you.

If you have any concerns about taking this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Keep this leaflet with the medicine. You may need to read it again.
What Paradex is used for
Paradex is used for the relief of mild to moderate pain.

Paradex contains two active ingredients- dextropropoxyphene hydrochloride and paracetamol. Both drugs have pain relieving properties, however, the combination of the two drugs produces greater pain relief than if either drug was taken alone.

Dextropropoxyphene hydrochloride works by affecting the body's feeling and response to pain. It acts on certain receptors on the nerves.

Paracetamol acts on certain chemicals in the nerves and blocks pain impulses. Paracetamol can also reduce fever.

Your doctor may have prescribed Paradex for another reason. Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why Paradex has been prescribed for you.

There have been reports that dextropropoxyphene hydrochloride is addictive. There is no evidence that paracetamol is addictive.

This medicine is available only with a doctor's prescription.
